Studies suggest that many people sleep better if they're in a
clean room and bed. Since you spend almost one-third of your life
asleep, it makes sense to schedule regular deep-cleans of the
entire bed. The expert cleaners at MOLLY MAID have created an easy,
four-step cleaning guide that will freshen the mattress, help
eliminate dust, and create a wonderful place for you to lay your
Step 1: Remove all bedding, including sheets,
pillow cases, mattress pad, valences, etc. Wash them in hot water -
at a minimum of 50 degrees Celsius.
Step 2: Vacuum the entire surface of your
mattress, including the sides and underside.
Step 3: Use a natural stain remover or a
laundry spot remover to treat and remove any stains. Be careful not
to spray on this product too heavily. The cleaners at MOLLY MAID
recommend using a dry cloth to blot the cleaning solution spray
over the stained area with water. Then, blot the water up with a
dry microfibre cloth to help remove any chemicals that may have
been left in the process.
Step 4: Mix together a small amount of baking
soda with a tablespoon of your favourite fabric softener - sprinkle
this mixture over your mattress. Let it sit for one hour, and then
vacuum it all up. (Do this once every couple of months, but be
careful not to use too much fabric softener.)
Note: If you use liquid cleaner or water on
your mattress, allow it to dry for a full four hours before you
place linen back on the bed. This will prevent any mold or mildew
from drawing upon extra moisture.
